That. Besides every other problem you have the security issue. When you implant a backdoor and a Golden key you've given up security. I'm sure South Korean parents would love to discover some child abuser has hacked into their kid device and started stalking said kid...
The unnamed European carrier in the Financial Times article is reportedly planning to target Google and block its ads to force the company into giving up some of its revenue.
You know, I'm no expert but wouldn't this go against any law or at least regulations? I mean, it sounds awfully like a collusion. It would be like an electricity company deciding to arbitrarily cut the consumer energy unless he decided to give them part of their revenue on top of paying the bill. This is how criminals operate: pay up or we destroy you.
this looks like a net neutrality violation on a large scale
Not that it isn't already being violated like there was no tomorrow, eh?
Hope Google give them a judicial nightmare if they try to extract any cash they clearly don't deserve.
Yes, keep devolving our kids into beings incapable of self sustaining and thinking. No, really "Girl I like, boy I like, dating, boyfriend, girlfriend, breakup" what is the fucking problem with a kid using these words? "But, the kid may..." Shut the fuck up, let the kid develop goddamn relationships, you know, to gain the experience to have real relationships in the future. "homosexual love" really, moral police, really? What is the problem with that word other than the obvious bigotry of the people in charge of the list? "Garbage", afraid of kids searching and talking about you?
We'll see the result of this 'for the children!' lunacy when the next generation hits adulthood. If they ever do. Because we are actively preventing them from developing.
To get around the regulations, some students say they will wait until they turn 19 to get a new phone.
Obviously teens in South Korea are much smarter than the fuckwits that call themselves adults and rule the country.
I took the liberty of checking your thing and the first thing that comes to the eyes: the MPA requested the study. I mean, the MPA is surely neutral, unbiased and the EU is totally biased and has no credibility. Oh and Media Link... Anyway, let's move on.
The sample. Oh the flawed, biased sample. Most of the sites it used in the research (if you can call it that) are CLEARLY dedicated for scamming. They are not your regular Pirate Bay, KickAss and other small private trackers that are FREE to use. So it is heavily biased towards an specific kind of 'infringing' site.
They don't mention voluntary donations either (maybe because the majority of the sites they researched are goddamn scams and don't have a built community) so, again, it's very biased.
I'd go on but I think I've said enough to discredit your "facts" already.
To all my fellow TD readers: have fun bashing the troll :D
It's not only doing it for corporate interests but if something that's deemed immoral or not in line with the sacred American family is also swept under the surveillance rug. A while back I was fortunate to have a chat with a girl that was very engaged in activism for sex workers and she even had Govt agents follow her around and later found out she was under close scrutiny for about 2.5 years. For fighting for the rights of sex workers. If you expand the search field a bit you'll remember Swartz being harassed for his activism (I'm not sure if the FBI was involved). Examples are out there to be seen.
lmao that's quite interesting... The MAFIAA touted the child porn issue to indirectly get their way and censor the internet but we can say that if you support though copyright laws then you support the Nazi censorship. Glorious!
Obviously it isn't that simple but the MAFIAA doesn't care about facts and details so we can skip them a bit and just say "Copyright supports Nazism!". Brilliant. Fucking brilliant!
I wonder what would be the reaction of the MAFIAA when tasting their own poison...
Add Netflix/Spotify or similar to the equation please. Those services alone caused geological impact in the piracy numbers (for content available through them) in a way that makes the MAFIAA seem like an utter failure at their core job (or so it seems) that is anti-piracy.
And even with all the hard data they are STILL chasing after the mills. Quixote would be proud.
The mere fact any pseudo-patent can be used to sue a starting company out of existence is enough evidence that the system is broken. So we have a scenario where there are a few huge behemoths that have the claws to stomp the vultures who dare to try them or can sustain some damage as if it was nothing and a decaying base of the ecosystem that's basically dead at their infancy with few exceptions. We all know in nature that the base of the pyramid is what gave birth to the developed organisms and it's not different here.
Well, if the Govt is any example Zuckeberg will be saying that Mozilla is supporting terrorism next. Tough to defend his position as more and more entities that promote open systems and access position themselves against the idea...
